    Yes you do, and quite well.
    But not as well as you write.

    Nice tribute to your grandfather, Darrin. I’m sorry he had to endure that garbage. Things will get better, I hope

    Today’s generation, no matter their race/color should take heed of what Darrin’s late Grandfather says. We ALL need to take heed. His Grandfather is part of the Greatest Generation for a reason.

    My dad was born of Slovak immigrants in Chicago, where he lived until he was drafted. He served in the Lightning Division (78th Infantry) during WWII. When his older brother’s daughter married a good ol’ boy from Alabama, he commented – with a vehemence I never heard before or since from him – “I do not like the idea of a cracker in the family”. I didn’t have any idea what he was talking about, until I heard Ray expressing his foul-mouthed bigotry, and I remembered how admiringly my dad had spoken of some of the ‘colored’ troops during the war. After his death, I learned that the 78th was the first division to integrate at the company level, and that the divisional commander – an FFV scion, no less – praised their performance to the skies. So my dad may well have owed his life to someone like Mr. Bell. Which means, of course, that so do I.
    Thank you, Mr. Bell, and all your comrades, for staying on our side in spite of all the filth you suffered in the form of ‘friendly fire’.

    THAT, sir (or ma’am) was a well-spoken observation and I applaud you for it.
